you hit the fase news group, this is the news group about
computer algebra not typesetting. The correct news group is

Ups -- Mathematica notebooks have no footnotes, 
a small program that scan all Cell[_,"Section"], Cell[_"Subsection"]
will create a table of contents but with out page numbers 
very useful;-) but it may setup hyperlinks.
(A a page number is generated only for the print out environment
and in the notebook itself is no reference to the actual 
"page number" in it is hidden in the PrintOptions[] as Counter["Page"]
and you can't find out from a Cell[] on what page it is printed.)

You can make a inline graphics cell

  "Here is a text with a figure ",
  Cell[GraphicsData["PostScript", "\<\
%%Creator: Mathematica
%%AspectRatio: .61803 
% End of Graphics
\>"], "Graphics",
    ImageSize->{288, 177.938},
    ImageMargins->{{0, 0}, {0, 0}},
    ImageRegion->{{0, 1}, {0, 1}}]
}], "Text"]

But a cell is equivalent to the horizontal mode of TeX and
so there will be no flow arround.

I have seen d PhD thesis written in notebook format and
it looks very lousy (it was a Math 3.0 notebook). 
Paul Abott may help you because he was the super 
visor of the PhD thesis.

You may look at the publicon site of wri

the Style sheets will work with minor
modifications with Mathematica.

Since you must edit the exported TeX file it is
much better to use TeX from the beginning and
insert some nice figures and TeXForm[]s 

TeX macros are more easy than to create and handle
50-200 style box types.
